Inside Any Museum

When I’m in any museum I end up spending part of the time watching people look at art. Some do the nonstop shuffle going from gallery to gallery. Others read all the educational materials before they dare study the artwork. Some seem to look at art only if it has a sitting area in front of it. And then there are those who glance at art in between checking their smart phones. (But those who must stay connected to a phone should  talk outside the gallery).

The more I’m in museums the more I realize there is no single best way to spend time looking at art.  Those who go to museums go for a variety of reasons. Almost any reason is good enough. Must you have a reason at all? When I’m in any museum I’m reminded of how complex we human beings are.  Just look at the art or watch those looking at it and you’ll see what I mean.
